Cardinal Flower – Live Plant

This 1-6 ft. plant has showy, red flowers in 8 in., terminal spikes. Although relatively common, overpicking this handsome wildflower has resulted in its scarcity in some areas. Since most insects find it difficult to navigate the long tubular flowers, Cardinal Flower depends on hummingbirds, which feed on the nectar, for pollination. Its common name alludes to the bright red robes worn by Roman Catholic cardinals. It can take anything from sun to part shade but does need moist soil.

Perennial. 1 gallon pot. Grown by Wise Hands Nursery.
